The day I discovered Litsea Cubeba, I immediately fell in love with it.   More than the oil’s beautiful, intense, citrusy scent, it was its versatility that impressed me.  You can tell how much I appreciate Litsea Cubeba’s fragrance and therapeutic properties by the fact that I have used it as a main ingredient in many of my best-selling blends, including Alegria Essential Oil Blend and Energia Essential Oil.
If you have been trying to use certain essential oils that you know are beneficial for your health but don’t quite like their scent, just combine them with a few drops of Litsea Cubeba – you will find that this wonderful oil can make any blend a pleasant-smelling one!

    1& 2: Digestive System — Eat less processed or junk food, reduce the amount of fat in your diet, step up water intake and opt for cooling things like cucumbers. 3: Liver — Cut out the alcohol, greasy food and dairy. This is the zone where food allergies also show up first, so take a look at your ingredients. Besides all this, do 30 minutes of light exercise every day and get adequate sleep so your liver can rest. 4 & 5: Kidneys — Anything around the eyes (including dark circles) point to dehydration. Drink up! 6: Heart — Check your blood pressure (mine was slightly high) and Vitamin B levels. Decrease the intake of spicy or pungent food, cut down on meat and get more fresh air. Besides this, look into ways to lower cholesterol, like replacing “bad fats” with “good fats” such as Omegas 3 and 6 found in nuts, avocados, fish and flax seed. Also, since this area is chock-full of dilated pores, check that your makeup is not past its expiry date or is skin-clogging. 7 & 8: Kidneys — Again, drink up! And cut down on aerated drinks, coffee and alcohol as these will cause further dehydration. Zone 9 & 10: Respiratory system — Do you smoke? Have allergies? This is your problem area for both. If neither of these is the issue, don’t let your body overheat, eat more cooling foods, cut down on sugar and get more fresh air. Also keep the body more alkaline by avoiding foods that make the body acidic (meat, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, sugar) and adding more alkalizing foods like green veggies and wheatgrass juice. Another thing that most of forget – dirty cell phones and pillow cases are two of the top acne culprits and this area is what they affect the most! Zone 11 & 12: Hormones — This is the signature zone for stress and hormonal changes. And while both are sometimes unavoidable, you can decrease their effect by getting adequate sleep, drinking enough water, eating leafy veggies and keeping skin scrupulously clean. Another interesting point: breakouts in this area indicate when you are ovulating (and on which side). Zone 13: Stomach — Step up the fibre intake, reduce the toxin overload and drink herbal teas to help with digestion. 14: Illness — Zits here can be a sign that your body is fighting bacteria to avoid illness. Give it a break, take a yoga class, take a nap, take time to breathe deeply, drink plenty of water and know that everything always works out! So the next time you break out or notice dark under-eye circles, look to your face map: your skin is probably trying to communicate on behalf of the internal organs. However, do remember that, as with all medical issues, it is always best to see your doctor or dermatologist for a proper prognosis. This is just a general guide to head you off in the right investigative direction – just because you break out between the brows doesn’t always mean you have a bad liver!   © 2012, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC

One of the most common questions I get is how to use aromatherapy to relieve sore muscles and joints.  Luckily, aromatherapy can be a powerful, all-natural painkiller — but only if it’s used the right way.  Since pain and inflammation can be caused by so many things and affect so many different areas, your specific aromatherapy blend will depend on where it hurts! Some essential oils — like Peppermint, Chamomile, Marjoram, just to name a few — are great at localized pain relief.  All you have to do is rub them over the affected area, (always diluted in a carrier oil), and they’ll give you instant relief.  They can be a great remedy for things like arthritis, gout, tendinitis, and muscle soreness. In fact, many of these essential oils contain some of the same ingredients as the common over the counter pain relievers.  The only difference is that essential oils aren’t mixed with a bunch of chemicals!  Because they’re all-natural, you won’t have any of the nasty side effects that can come with traditional painkillers. Other essential oils — Lavender, Birch, Ginger being just a few examples — are great at making their way through your skin and working deep inside your body to get rid of the inflammation and toxins that are leaving you in severe pain.

So, how can you reap the benefits of these painkilling essential oils at home?

Make your own hot and cold compresses following this recipe: –        Start with two empty bowls –        Put one teaspoon of salt in each bowl –        Add 2 drops each of Blue Chamomile, Lavender, and Helichrysum to both bowls –        Fill one bowl with hot water; the other with iced water –        Soak a small towel in each bowl, and squeeze out the excess water –        Apply the hot compress for 1 minute –        Apply the cold compress for 1 minute –        Keep alternating compresses for 15 minutes

Want another way to take advantage of pain relief aromatherapy at home?

Massage the area where it hurts.  That way, you can boost your circulation and chase out toxins.  All you need to do is pick the right oil for your specific needs, and massage it into your skin every day.  Luckily, we’ve got two popular (and powerful) blends that can give you the relief you need: –        If you’re dealing with localized pain and inflammation, Pain Begone Body Oil is a great blend.  With a mixture of Birch, Peppermint, Ravensara, and Lavender, you’ll get a natural analgesic and anti-inflammatory. –        If you’ve got circulation problems — especially if you’re stuck standing all day at work — try Circulation Body Oil.  A combination of Cypress, Geranium, Ginger, and Niaouli will stimulate your blood flow and prevent uric acid from building up in your joints. And remember — muscle pain isn’t always caused by physical labor!  Sometimes, you can wind up in severe pain when you’re in the middle of a stressful situation or when you’re feeling anxious. I’ve found that the best way to calm down after a rough day (and to soothe aching muscles that are sore from all of that pent-up anxiety) is to soak in a hot bath with 1/4 cup of our Alivio Bath Soak.  This aromatic blend is specially-designed to relax your muscles and take pressure off your joints so that you can say goodbye to your pain in a matter of minutes.  It also helps detoxify your system so that you can feel better both inside and out. That’s why aromatherapy is so powerful — it addresses the physical and emotional causes of pain.   That way, you can benefit from holistic healing, no matter what’s causing your pain!

Jun 18 2012 Think that aromatherapy is just something that can make bath time more relaxing? Think again! Aromatherapy is capable of so much more than that. In fact, it’s the reason I have a son today! Back in 1996, my husband and I were trying to get pregnant.  When we ran into some problems, we went to a bunch of different doctors.  None of their suggestions worked, and I wound up totally exhausted. Part of what made the process so grueling was the fact that we didn’t know why this was happening.  There are lots of medical issues that can keep people from having children, but in our case, there was no medical explanation.  None of our doctors could tell us what the problem was.  They didn’t even have any educated guesses. It was just a bunch of shoulder-shrugging. As luck would have it, I was doing some reading about the benefits of essential oils.  At first, my reading was strictly business, since I was introducing essential oils to the Ecuadorian market, and I wanted to know everything about them. But what I read quickly turned personal.  In fact, it changed my entire life! Among their other benefits, essential oils can act as a “tune up” for your entire body.  Here’s how:

They help you relax   

When you’re going through an infertility problem, relaxation is non-existent.  Unfortunately, that can make it even harder to get pregnant!  Luckily, essential oils helped me live in the moment and experience more peace.

They balance your hormones and reproductive system

Amazingly, they work for both men and women.  Since my husband and I had gone through years of fertility treatments, we clearly needed some help in this department!

They stimulate different “drainage areas” 

Your skin, kidneys, and lungs are all responsible for getting toxins out of your body.  But if these “drainage areas” aren’t working the way they should, it can lead to a toxin build-up.  Luckily, essential oils can make these “drains” work harder. Just one month later, Juan Martin was conceived! I wanted to share my success with other couples, so I decided to offer the oil blends I used as part of the Aromadina line.  Here’s what worked for me:
  1. Cristina’s blend: fennel, clary sage, geranium, lavender, grapefruit.  This actually is a blend that I currently sell in my Aromandina line as Woman’s Help Body Oil 
  2. Martin’s bend: the same, plus 4 each of Basil and Spruce essential oil
So far, more than 20 couples have seen success with these oils. I don’t consider myself a fertility specialist, though. Instead, I believe that aromatherapy is a great way to bring your body back into balance. And once you’re balanced, amazing things can happen!    © 2012, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC

Aug 10 2011 Thank you all for showing interest in the article on Helichrysum or ‘Everlasting Oil’ that I posted a few days ago. Many readers have mailed in saying that they would like to start using this oil but do not know how to go about it. Here, I have compiled some easy-to-use aromatherapy recipes and solutions that will let you reap all the positive benefits of this amazing oil on an everyday basis.  

Uses of Undiluted Helichrysum Oil

For hematomas: Helichrysum is known for its ability to dissolve blood clots and promote healing of surrounding tissues. Apply this oil neat (undiluted) over the affected area every day. For cuts and burns: Helichrysum possesses anti-inflammatory and tissue-regenerating properties. Apply a couple of drops neat on the affected area to soothe the irritated skin and aid healing.

Uses of Diluted Helichrysum Oil

You can make your own Everlasting Oil blend by adding 10 drops of Helichrysum to 1 oz of any carrier oil such as Jojoba.  This blend is useful for treating many common ailments. For headaches: Rub a few drops of the blend between your fingertips and massage your temples and back of the neck with it. For asthma and bronchitis: Massage some of the blended oil onto your chest. For irritable bowels: Massage your lower abdomen with the blend twice a day. For pain relief: Massage the blended oil into sore muscles and inflamed joints using circular motions. For skin care: With your fingertips, apply a few drops of the blended oil onto clean, dry skin. Use light pressure and slow press-and-release movements. The oil nourishes the skin and is very effective against wrinkles. For Anxiety and Depression: Before going to bed, apply the blended oil to your solar plexus, and allow all negative emotions to be released. Helychrisum oil can help heal deep psychological wounds and emotional scars. I hope you enjoy using this oil. Please let me know if you have any queries – I will be very happy to answer them!
